    Hi all,

    One of the main use I have for my iPad is reading news, emails and of course, having to read what happened on my facebook account. Currently I am using Facepad. Tried also Friendly which was good also.

    Is there a better app for facebook (like the one on the iPhone)? I know I can also install the official Facebook iPhone apps, but I would prefer a native app for the iPad.

    Thanks!

    Honestly, just install the official iPhone app if you want notifications but the best facebook app is safari.

    I like it too, but I haven't found a way to change my profile image from within Friendly.

    +1 on friendly. But still using the browser for facebook isnt bad at all. Especially if all you want to do is change your profile picture.

    I have found that certain posts do not show up in friendly. I just use Safaria.

    I have been using Friendly. Have not tried the other. For what I do, Friendly seems to work just fine. I like how it will jump you to the website and back again to be able to see the page as it looks in your browser.

    I am using FB with Safari.
    Friendly cannot show the pictures/photo albums as I would like to have.
    And you cannot update your wall with links as you can at the normal homepage...
